Re: Should Trump be removed from the primary ballots?

Why would you want that?

He's a weight on the party.

If he's still in the mix there is no way the party can stay in array. If he gets removed, you're actually doing Republicans a favor.

I would certainly not agree to a Christmas truce with Russia. Or, at the very least, assume they're going to break the truce which they would absolutely do.

Re: Elon Musk, rip-off King!

Elon turns on Bari Weiss. Accuses her of trying to keep one foot in both worlds. This would seem to suggest that his Twitter files were, well, one sided.

Re: Congress Hearing on FTX Crypto Collapse

I knew something smelled bad when new crypto startups suddenly had the cash to start name-sponsoring arenas. In LA, Staples Center became Crypto.com Arena. This year, given the Lakers' record, it's more commonly known as The Crypt. I would consider that to be symbolic of the whole crypto bubble. I ...

Elon has now invented Reddit for people who don't like topics. He has confirmed that Twitter will go from 280 characters to 4000 per Tweet.

For a man who bought Twitter, he doesn't seem to grasp what Twitter actually is.

He's charging more for iOS users because Apple takes a large chunk of app income. To be sure, Apple does charge a significant amount to developers for their apps to be on the store (non-free apps).

The facts in your mind are what you claim them to be. That doesn’t make them facts. There isn’t a groundswell in the conservative movement to outlaw gay marriage. SCOTUS has already ruled on the matter. I get that you would like to keep the issue. You are all about the politics of fear. That’s all ...

Re: After today you are either calling for impeachment of Clarence Thomas, or

It's not really my place to call for his impeachment.

All I know is that the country's commitment to law, order, justice has taken a real beating the last several years as though it was slogans without meaning.
